As generally envisaged, the smart grid is not only a complicated system made of many parts, but also a complex system one in which overall behavior cannot not be directly inferred from the behavior of the individual components, and one that no single entity can control, monitor and manage in real-time. Because it is complex, distributed control is more than a convenience; it is required.
